Hello, I know this isn't a topic that shouldn't really be on BC but I thought that since you guys have a good knowledge of this kind of thing, I thought I would post anyway.
My question:

I just got an iPhone 3GS and I want to hook up to my computer and the wall outlet at the same time because it takes too long to charge on the computer and I want to be able to sync. This was possible for older iPods and such, but now the iphone has no firwire support.
I bought a cable like this for my iPod Mini and I also have regular 30-pin (I think thats the ipod connect thing) to Usb and regular 30-pin to Firewire:

My real questions are: is it possible to have a setup like this and are there any products like this:

OR

Is there a product available thats like this:

OR

Can I get similar results with the Griffin Simplifi (click here for specs)? Even if I have to buy extra cables? I can't tell by the description because it doesn't say directly. It looks something like this:

Hi browser the dog

Is this what you are looking for??

http://store.iphoneworld.ca/product_info.p...roducts_id=5262

Its a usb cradle with an ac charger so you only need one usb lead, the charging is done thru the ac lead connected to the dock!

hope this helps!

Thank you so much for your help, although I have settled for just plugging into computer.
I don't really want to sped another $30 on a dock. I would still want though a simple two-USB cord to use with my existing dock.
